June 20, 2014 — SEGA today released a brand new live action trailer for the highly anticipated Company of Heroes™ 2: The Western Front Armies, poised to launch next week worldwide on June 24, 2014, as a standalone multiplayer offering in store and online. Showing the war from two sides, the trailer follows two soldiers, one on each side of the Western Front, walking in slow-motion through the war-torn landscape; the US soldier through a forest, and the German Oberkommando soldier through an open field on the opposing front. They pass others positioned in the heat of the battle – soldiers taking cover, others ready to strike – but something is amiss. Their comrades are frozen in time, bronze war memorial statues representing the countless fallen soldiers of World War II. The two soldiers reach the frontline of the battle, now facing each other with weapons drawn, amongst their frozen brothers. As the first shot is fired, the scene awakens and comes alive with the sound of war, throwing the viewer right in the center of it.
The Western Front Armies brings players back to the Western Front, first introduced in the award-winning original Company of Heroes™. Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies launches on June 24, 2014, for Windows PC, as a standalone multiplayer offering in store and online for $19.99. The Western Front Armies introduces two unique collections of new content – the US Forces and the German Oberkommando West. Each individual army will also be available as a standalone purchase for $12.99 via digital download, providing new players with a minimal entry point into the massive Company of Heroes 2 multiplayer community, regardless of which content they own.
